The Pound rallied yesterday to hit its highest rate against the Euro since 2017, following Theresa May's latest comments on Brexit.
The UK PM announced for the first time that Brexit could be delayed if her second proposed deal is rejected by MPs by March 12th.
If this is the case, May will then ask parliamentarians to vote on whether or not the UK should leave the EU without a deal, yet previous votes have shown the majority of parliament is against this occurring.
Should both be rejected, then MPs will be able to vote on a "short, limited extension to Article 50", just weeks before the UK's official leave date. This has widely been recognised as an indicator that either a softer Brexit or a no Brexit deal at all is looking more likely, easing fears across financial markets.
In turn, the PM`s comments have contributed to the strongest Pound-Euro rate in two years, which is being welcomed by British property buyers.
